Boy 1 and I went to Osan Air Force Base yesterday. We are heading to Saipan today and we needed to get our SOFA stamps in our passports before we leave. We can get them done here, however it takes MUCH longer to get them done & they would not be complete before we left. So, we hopped on a bus (visualize that) and headed to Osan, a 1 hour 15 minute trip. We didn’t mind though, this was a great opportunity to see another area of Korea, plus the Air Force seems to live a more posh life than the Army, their BX is bigger than our PX, they seem to have more amenities and their housing is better...yes, you sense a bit of jealousy. It took all of 3 minutes, including waiting time to get our SOFA stamps. From there we headed here……..
Yes, the Air Force base even has a Chili's! Now we love the food here in Korea, but to see a Chili's was like a little slice of heaven. Boy 1 and I were very excited to eat here. He had a sirloin and I had the quesadilla explosion salad, we also had chips and salsa. To be in Chili's was almost like being in the US for a little while. We have decided we will have to come back every few months just to eat here.
After Chili's we went to the shopping district outside the main gate. Boy 1 got a Denver Bronco jersey, and I got 6 Coach Bags and a Coach wallet for my hubby for less than you can buy one Coach Bag for in the states. Yes, they may be knock off's, but no one would ever know, except that I just told you. This is the best priced area for bags that I have found.
